Emile Enmeau, 68-year-old retired businessman who steps flown today as president of the WBA, lauded Dr. Feldman's proposals but said a decision on C h u v a 1 o's physical fitness should be made by Canadian authorities.

OTTAWA (CP) If Saskal chewan Roughriders gain re from Oltawa Rough Ri ders tonight for their loss to th Eastern Football Confcrenc club in the 1969 Grey Cup game "ome of tlie sweetness will b missing. Ottawa Is simply not tlie same team that bounced Regina 29-1 n Montreal last fall to retain the Canadian Football Leagui title. Gone are quarterback Huss lackson, the league's most valu able player in Vic Wash ngton, the fleet halfback who dominated the Ottawa back ield, Margene Adkins, the club's flashiest end, and defen sive stalwart Gene Gaines. Of 0 11 a w a 's top scoring hreats last year only receiver Vhit Tucker is still with the club, and he is out for at least iix weeks with a knee injury. As a result. Saskatchewan, vith a 3-0 record early in the is favored to defeat Ot- awa tonight. Ottawa has lost its ally 1970 league game, 17-15 to lamilton, beaten 23-22 by Sas- katchewan on S'aturday. Saskatchewan coach Eagle eys said Monday he intends to se basically the same lineup fiat beat Hamilton. Halfback Bobby Thompson, njured during the first quarter aturday, is a doubtful starter, ut Keys said nothing is definite until late today. On the other hand coach Jack jotta of Ottawa is doing some uggling with Ills lineup, wlu'ch coked woefully weak on offence in its only game of the regular eason against Hamilton, 1VS ?eeks ago. Gary Wood, former backup ivot with the New York Giants the National Football League, ill remain at quarterback, de- pite indifferent performances i date. But Gotta has indicated his atience is running out with fullback Jim Manldns. The Ot- tawa coach said Monday may replace Manldns at full- back with young Greg Thomp- son. Terry Wellesley of Belleville, Ont., is scheduled to get Ms first start at halfback for the Riders. The game, which begins at 5 p.m. MST, will be televised na- tionally on CTV. Tlie Ottawa defence will have its hands full if Saskatchewan's backs come on as strong as they did against Hamilton. Fullback George Reed picked up 199 yards rushing and Silas McKinney scored on a 91-yard pass-and-run play with quarter- back Ron Lancaster. Reed says tlie Regina team is already a shade stronger than the team that lost' the Grey Cup last fall Gives Foster Title Bout STATELINE, Ney.

"We have a guarantee or 40 >er cent of the gate, whichever s greater. They've agreed to the terms." Frazier, currently singing at Lake Tahoe with a ca- mo s h o r w o o n rock group, veighs about 222 pounds. Dur- mm said he will weigh about 01 when he enter's the ring gainst Foster, the 28-year-old Vashington boxer who has been ight-Jleavy king for two years. Silverbcrg, a 37-year-old uv surance man, said he had "no complaints about the course, the greens aren't really as slow as everyone says, you just neec some intestinal fortitude to get the ball up there." The veteran of 18 Willingdon Cup teams fired two birdies, 1; pars and went a stroke over on the par-four, 331-yard second hole. Alexander, whose last visit to the Ottawa club ended i lory in (lie 1960 Canadian ama- teur, said a sharper putting game could have landed lu'm about a 67. He chopped two strokes off par on the front nine, the ;ougher half of the course, and in the par-four 13th he had an 18-inch putt to make for a birdie three but missed as it curled away from the bole.
